Riff: She & Him – “I Could’ve Been Your Girl”

May 7, 2013

And you could’ve been my four leaf clover/If I could do it over/I’d send you the pillow that I cry on

from I Could've Been Your Girl lyrics by She & Him

The kind of tear-stained retro guitar-pop that the pair have built their career on, “I Could’ve Been Your Girl” is the record’s most emotive broken-hearted anthem, largely thanks to the hurting Deschanel’s sudden realization that the relationship in question was never meant to be; [LISTEN].
